(TNS) — Several Lorain County high school students had the opportunity this summer to learn web development, project management and employability skills, according to a news release.

The youth were involved in Student WEB CORPS — a signature program of TECH CORPS, a national nonprofit committed to ensuring all K-12 students have access to high-quality technology programs.

The Community Foundation of Lorain County, Nord Family Foundation, Nordson Corporation Foundation and Ohio Means Jobs of Lorain County each had a hand in making this year's programming possible, according to the release.
